Erzberg 2019 - My thoughts

Wade competed on an old perma-toob??

What was he thinking? :eek7:

Yes and a 44yr old wouldn't, he learnt a lesson methinks.

Very common for these guys to use “old” moose in the back. New ones can be too hard and even drilling them doesn’t make them supple enough for this terrain. It’s a fine line unfortunately. I can almost guarantee you that Jarvis didn’t start on a new moose either. The back wheel setup is so soft they need 2 rim locks to keep the tyre on. I’ve even seen then use 3 rim locks before!

I sat and watched all 2.5hrs of Jarvis' helmet cam footage last night (my wife now wants me committed to an asylum, but anyway).

We'll be in tyhe same asylum then, watched it too.
What amazes me is that he only slightly applies the throttle whilst he masters the clutch, I've actually suspected him of using a Rekluse.
And only when his engine screams it's required, never a glipsie or showoff moment or why, it's on purpose.
Marvellous riding, it's an artform!  :thumleft:

Yeh. crazy smooth, and amazing clutch control. Just precision bursts of power.  Saw a lot of the other guys spinning and revving a lot in the rocks, he was pure control.

What is telling is when you see his bike after an event and compare it to some others like Wade - barely a scratch. As mentioned the trials footup experience of some riders shows technically esp at Ertzberg - it also shows in preserving the bikes mechanics through smooth calculated riding.

He did go down once on a long descent full of snow.

You could see at the top by the movement of his helmet he was like "Down there? No.  Are you serious?"

And then some footage of the front wheel doing a lot of sliding and a little bail at the bottom :imaposer:  Chucked the goggles off, got back on and ket going immediately.

Or they can drill the rim beading and screw self-tappers into the tyre beading.

Hes kicked Jarvis`s arse on many occasions and at enduro courses that are considered just as extreme as Erzberg! His mousse collapsed on the day and it could`ve happened to the old man as well, lots to do with how the day goes

the old man

Edgy,

clearly you're a Wade fan, and let's be honest - who isn't on here hmm?

However, that old bloke you're on about, he's special.... and not only because he is older than the rest - he's not old - for that takes some doing!
Stealthily gliding over rocks, smoothest clutch control I've ever heard/seen plus zero engine abuse, and in addition he's genuinely a gentleman, always polite to the point that one wonders if he actually can get angry!
Loadsa respect for him from me, and then referring to him as an old man shows little respect if you ask me...

You guessed it, also a Jarvis fan here, and I may be surely?
Be a bit nicer to ol' Graham, I'll not be the only one who thinks he deserves at least that.  ;)

No Burp you got me wrong
I have only great respect for Jarvis especially after having met and chatted with him at the Roof a few years ago!
BTW he refers to himself as the old man of the sport...and he is, all the more respect that he can and still kicks butt!!
So in conclusion yes I am a Wade fan(being RSA) but also really enjoy and massively respect the old guy Mr Graham Jarvis specifically being as awesome as he is at 44 years old in a young mans game....my entire argument was PLEASE do not say I am smoking something because I suggested that Wade CAN beat Jarvis at Erzberg on a good day because he certainly can!

What amazes me is Jarvis is like DOUBLE most of the others age. The only other guy anywhere near his age is Blazusiak and I think he is still 30 something.

Also watched his whole 2.3 hr video so I am glad i was not the only one. Have not yet looked for Wade's.

Have to agree the Carl dinner section was a bit boring to watch except for a couple of those brig rock trials sections. Loved it that he screamed up that possible slope looking for the way on. I was yelling "keep on the road there was no sign to turn off yet! " After losing 3 minutes buggering around he still wins by a big margin. Super happy he showed the yougin's as I was worried he was going to call a retirement last year.

But If you want to see someone who was super, super shit hot, watch this crazy italian ride. Respect.

&t=627s

Some really crazy stuff particularly in the first 15 minutes

Rally nut. What could possibly go wrong?
